Baan Surin Sawan is an exquisite sea-view villa set in a tranquil hillside estate just minutes away from the sands of Surin Beach on Phuket’s beautiful west coast. Brimming with elegance and a fascinating collection of art and artefacts from around the world, this four-bedroom, fully staffed villa embraces easy, yet luxurious, tropical living. Sawan is Thai for ‘Heaven’; and with this stunning blend of tropical setting, enchanting contemporary Thai design and dazzling sunset views, it’s not hard to see why Baan Surin Sawan is so aptly named.
Traditional Thai pitched-roof pavilions front the villa’s private and communal accommodation which is configured in three spacious bedroom suites, a comfortable and inviting living room, fully-equipped entertainment room, modern kitchen and functional dining room, while tropical outdoor living focuses around the villa’s refreshing 10-metre pool.
Throughout Baan Surin Sawan, intricate hangings adorn the walls, alongside embroidered fabrics, African masks and other works of art sourced from around the world – testament to the owner’s travels. An extensive use of wood, marble, stone and other natural materials combine with floor mosaics and eye-catching design details to give the villa a distinctive flair.
Baan Surin Sawan is staffed with a full-time Thai chef who prepares delicious meals daily, two maids and a villa manager who will be pleased to assist with guests’ holiday requirements both in the villa and beyond.
